Paxahau Inc’s Movement Electronic Music Festival was proud to kick off their 2014 festival in Hart Plaza, the home of the festival since 2000 this past Memorial Day Weekend. The weekend was long anticipated ever since the set times were announced. Attendees quickly rushed to create a schedule of all the parties during and after the festival and outline the grounds in order not to miss a THING! It was here and gone in a flash leaving you feeling like every ounce of energy was sucked out of you with a vacuum and DT was in attendance to give you all the after effects.
Detroit is a city representative of a people with a passion for life, love, and music and an abundance of heart and soul. It is the home of Motown, a major hub for Jazz, Blues, Gospel, and more recently Hip-Hop and Pop pioneers. It’s no surprise our beloved Techno planted its roots in the place we call home for one weekend each year. The sounds of this rich history are injected into each and every set heard throughout the weekend playing homage to “The Belleville Three” which consists of Kevin Saunderson, Juan Atkins, and Derrick May who originally paved the way for the House and Techno movement and were directly involved in The Movement Festival itself. Named “Detroit Techno Week” by proclamation of the city’s mayor, this is the mecca, a sound and feeling with a sincerely unrivaled pulse.
